Review summary

The selection of cities visited on the trip and timing was excellent, although personally would have preferred the cruise had originated in Oslo Norway and had one less day in St. Petersburg. The Silverseas seemed more like silver hairs, so had to adjust my expectations for experience with the vast majority of passengers who seemed over 65.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
I appreciated the beverage policy on this cruise. The chef had some nice quality sauces and items on the menu\, but the poor quality of fruits and vegetables and breads was a big disappointment to the meals.


1 out of 5
The entertainment on the ship was mediocre at best. The lectures on destinations provided some good history and locations of the city\, but very limited information on actual sites of interest. Souveneir lector was informative\, but seemed self serving to sell her own products.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
The wait staff was very friendly and attentive\, but the cabin butler was not. The photographer was absent for arrival and key points during the cruise. The captain or head staff provided very sparse appearance and interaction during the cruise.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Ship seemed a nice size and bigger than expected\, but the stained carpets in corridors showed it's age. The poor quality self-serve laundry machines and limited number seemed to be frustrating to many passengers.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The layout of the cabins with moderate bathrooms was appreciated\, but the condition of the room also showed.

Pros: Layout of room and beverages included with trip.

Cons: Poor quality of fruits and vegetables\, stained carpets in corridors\, poor quality self-serve laundry\, mediocre entertainment.\, Limited photographer available\, limited captain or head staff interaction during key points of cruise

Recommends Silver Whisper? No.
